Chipper in Glasnevin pulls off romantic Valentine's evening meal

Feb 15th 2014, 10:17 AM 35,502 21

A CHIPPER MIGHT not be the first place you’d think of when it comes to a romantic Valentine’s Day meal for two… but you’d be wrong.

Macaris in Glasnevin decided to pull out all the stops last night and offer a sit-down menu to customers who wanted to celebrate their grá over some chips and red wine.

They had so much interest that they had to hold a draw to decide which couples would get to come and sample the romantic menu.

Fabio Molle from Macaris told us that:

The night went really well. But of stress getting it all together but great fun overall and enjoyed by our guests.

The couples were offered something a little different to your usual chipper fare for the night that was in it, choosing from:


Beef arrabiata meatballs with fresh basil and mozzarella

Warm goats cheese salad

Bruschetta with tomatoes & basil

Main Course 

Lightly battered fillet of fresh cod

Fillet steak marinated in balsamic vinegar and red wine

Baked Irish salmon with steamed asparagus

All mains come with a selection of vegetables and chunky chips


Lush chocolate flake cheesecake

Affogato (Vanilla ice-cream with espresso on top)

Not a battered sausage in sight!

According to Macaris:

They were plenty of onlookers taking photos from outside and all the customers saw the fun side of it and some looking to book a table for tomorrow night.
The night gave us  a good feel of the difference between fast food and a restaurant. It’s definitely a tough business to be in. At times there were scenes from a Gordon Ramsey show in the kitchen!
